About the whimsical play
In a moonlit forest on the eve of a royal wedding, several sets of characters converge: a group of young lovers, a troupe of amateur actors and a band of fairies.
Through cleverly interconnected plotlines — including a play within the play — “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” encompasses forbidden love, unrequited love, a lover’s quarrel, enchanted love, tragic love (though comically portrayed) and, finally, true love that restores balance and harmony.
Directed by Sarah J. Wiggin. Written by William Shakespeare.
